I've been a monthly premium subscriber since day one. All of a sudden, within the past hour or so, my sub seems to have gone missing. I'm seeing ads, and I can't get at any of the premium content. My billing cycle starts closer to the end of the month (I'm paid up), and I was able to access premium just a short while ago. Anyone else having this problem?

I'm having the same issue right now. My sub should be good, but getting ads and no access to premium content.

I have the same problem now as well, and I'm a monthly subscriber.

Everyone else having the problem a monthly subscriber?

It seems widespread. I'm a monthly subscriber with the same problem.

Same here, I emailed Rorie today but hopefully it gets fixed soon. I want to watch the GB Unplugged! :(

Same here. I've just had mine set to auto-renew. Now it's back to Free.

I'm having the same problem. I'm a yearly subscriber and automatically paid for renewal at the end of January. I'm guessing the problem is the same merchant service error that Rorie mentioned before. I've e-mailed support. Hopefully it's something easy to fix because it looks like it could be affecting anyone resubscribing during that period.

Well, i just subscribed again. Was afraid it would give me an error but it worked fine.

Hope it doesn't double charge me.

Ya, I checked my bank account and it looks like there was no renewal. It was supposed to renew the 26th, and I definitely watched the Unplugged so I think they had a problem accepting payments and all subscriptions just quit renewal. That really fucking sucks for GB I assume, guessing they will lose a lot of income due to this.

Hey guys.

If you have outstanding issues with this, contact support[at]giantbomb.com

In some cases, auto-renews might not have occurred to your account. If you think that's the case, please email rorie there.

My subscription didn't renew. So I just resubscribed with the same CC. No problems so far...
